Blues Obscurities Volumes 1 - 10 (New Vinyl Rips)

vol. 1:
vol. 2:
vol. 3:
vol. 4:
vol. 5:

These are new rips at 320kbs from vinyl that is at least VG+ and all with the original inserts except vol. 5.
You might get the occasional pop/click but nothing serious. The sound quality and mastering of the LP's ranges from OK to bloody awful with vol. 10 been the worst of the lot. DIY covers from Skinnymom as the original white covers are boring.
You don't need these as everything is available in far better quality spread over a 100 cd's.
Track listing can be found at Stefan's site.

Anthology Of The Blues Vol. 1 - 12

Recordings originally made for the Bihari brothers' Modern label in the 1940s and 1950s were subject to several reissue campaigns throughout the following decades. Kent Records, established by the Biharis after Modern had gone bankrupt, was the most qualified company to take on this task, especially in contrast to the efforts of more cut-rate outfits such as United Superior and Crown. 
So here you have all 12 volumes of 'The Anthology Of The Blues" series originally released in 1969/70 on Kent.... though some of the LP's used are on the United or Musidisc labels.

Legend of Elmore James:
Memphis Blues:
California Blues:
Blues From The Deep South:
Texas Blues:
Detroit Blues:
(correct link for Detroit)
Arkansas Blues:
Lightnin' Hopkins:
Mississippi Blues:
Resurection Of Elmore James:
B.B. King:
West Coast Blues:

Re-post request.
